Acai berries come from the acai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America, particularly the Amazon rain forest in Brazil. The fruit is about an inch long, reddish-purple, and similar to blueberries and cranberries in appearance. The seed takes up a lot of the space, however, leaving only about 10-20 percent of the berry that’s edible. The tree produces a lot of berries in branched clusters of 500 to 900 fruits. The flavor has been described as a rich mix of berries and chocolate.
